It might sometimes seem that there are all new faces at the library. And it is true that many long-time staff members have either retired or moved on to other pastures. There have also been many changes to the physical plant—a switch from oil to gas heat, an ongoing window replacement project etc. What we hope remains the same is the quality of service that we offer to our patrons. Take this opportunity to have coffee and a chat with Library Director Cyndi Desrochers. This is a chance to hear what she has to say about these changes and to voice your concerns and suggestions. We’ll start the evening off with a viewing of the fifteen minute documentary The North Kingstown Free Library: The First 116 Years. Of course, Cyndi is always available by appointment to discuss library issues. But she won’t always have coffee and cookies to offer! Registration is suggested but not required.

By turns quirky, hilarious, and vividly sensory, this is an unexpected mother-daughter story about the bittersweet nature of life-its missed opportunities and its joyful surprises. Each chapter tells the story of a single dish and character, at once capturing the zeitgeist of the Midwest, the rise of foodie culture, and delving into the ways food creates community and a sense of identity. Books will be available; please register. March book: Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro

Saturday, February 27, 2016 - 2:00pm

Floral origami artist Joyce Kutty will lead this free workshop demonstrating how to make stunning floral bouquets from paper.

Everyone takes home a bouquet! Sign up beginning February 1st.
